Cloud computing is a mechanism for allowing effective, easy and on-demand network access to a shared pool of computer resources. Instead of storing data on PCs and upgrading softwares to match your requirements, the internet services are used to save data or use its apps remotely. It perform the function of processing and storing a database to provide consumers with versatility. For specialized computational needs, the supercomputers are used in cloud computing. Because of execution of such high performances computers, a great deal of power devoured and the result is that certain dangerous gases are often emitted in a comparable amounts of energy. Green computing is the philosophy that aim to restrict this technique by introducing latest models that would work effectively while devouring less resources and having less people. The basic goal of this study is to discuss the techniques of green computing for achieving low power consumption. We analyze multiple power management techniques used in the virtual enviroment and further green computing uses are mentioned. The advantages of green computing discussed in this study have shown that it help in cutting cost of companies, save enviroment and maintain its sustainability. This work suggested that researchers are becoming ever more invloved in green computing technology.
